Battle River and Sounding Creek Stewardship Community of Practice

The BRSC Stewardship Community of Practice (CoP) is a group of individuals and organizations that work in the Battle River and Sounding Creek watersheds, committed to working to advance stewardship actions through the creation and exchange of knowledge and experience.

The goals for the Community of Practice are to:

  • Foster a stewardship ethic
  • Promote and showcase stewardship actions in the watersheds
  • Connect learning to action
  • Elevate the profile of stewardship work within the Battle River and Sounding Creek watersheds, and across Alberta.
  • Forster support and collaboration amongst community members and organizations.

Stewardship is our collective responsibility to care for our land, air, water, and biodiversity in a way that conserves all of its values, be they ecological, economic, social, or cultural.
